A 23-year career as a police officer in St. Louis County prepared Charles Craig to help train officers in Columbia. For the past 12 years, Craig has shared his extensive knowledge of firearms and intensive driving by running several programs for officers at the University of Missouri.
“Mr. Craig has helped supplement the training staff by providing outstanding firearms and emergency driving training,” said Lt. Geoff Jones, Columbia Police Department. “His experience in law enforcement, coupled with his experience teaching in an academy setting, has given him credibility as a department instructor. We are thankful to have him”.
Craig also worked for six years with the National Animal Control Association, providing training across the country, and has dedicated his time with the Missouri Sheriff’s Academy, where he helped provide firearms and intensive driving training.
